At nearly 2 hours long, the DVD has all the songs on the CD plus three more, and includes revealing interview and studio vignettes woven between the songs. The added segments give the DVD, directed by Spookie Daly (Georgia Warhorse documentary and several JJ videos) a rockumentary feel, a la The Last Waltz. "On January 22nd, 2011 we all got together at The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia for a wonderful evening of music. As always the folks that came brought the show to that level where time stands still and the evening becomes almost surreal. We want to thank everyone for bringing it and for making it so easy to play; without y'all we wouldn't get there. I've always felt that the music opens the door but we've all got to walk through it together. Our thanks to all the folks that night and every other night who've taken and hopefully continue to take that stroll with us". "Thanks to: Dan Prothero, Jesse Aratow, Daryl Hance, Cassie Siegel and everyone at Madison House, Jim and Nancy Devito, Derek Trucks, Spookie Daly, Rob "Daddy-O" Breitenfeld, Joshua Knight and Monterey International, Bruce Iglauer and the gang at Alligator Records, Chris Delucchi, Colin Peterson, Aaron Coteff, Danny Owen, Clay Daniel, Hal-Joe, The Hance Family, Mark Baxter, Suzi Matthews, Robbie and Lois Weitnauer, Brett Fitzgerald, Tim Padgette, Michael Wagoner at Gibson, Mark Baier at Victoria Amplifiers, Shane Smith and the whole crew at Bolt Amplifiers and as always, my family" - JJ Grey.

This man is big in the USA but must surely break here soon.The Dave Matthews Band took awhile here, but do either get this album or one of his others,play it once you'll be well and truly hooked to one of the best bands on the planet today.5* doesn't seem enough for music this great, order with absolute confidence.If you like Southside Johnny, Lynyrd Skynard,Allman Brothers and bands similar believe me this is definitely for you.Get the word out J J Grey & Mofro !
Anyway, take any of their studio records and you will find the same exciting recipe of Swamp rock with Soul mixed in.
A logical move would have been a live album. This is what you get and, wait for it, a 2 hour concert DVD/movie.
As far as the live CD is concerned, twelve songs just ain't enough.
Starting off the proceedings with a lazy version of Country Ghetto followed by the slow, sax filled Woman it's hardly rock 'n roll. Brighter Days and Air further show Grey's soulful side. But the all hell breaks loose with the monster rock song that is War (his own song not the popular one). More dirtyassrock is to follow with Dirtfloorcracker and Ho Cake.
The DVD has an extra 3 tracks with Hide & Seek, King Hummingbird and Slow Hot & Sweaty.
I rarely give out 5 stars but this one is more than worth it. Certainly together with the albums that went before.
The music is so diverse that its hard to categorise.
The dvd starts with "War" and is a a great opener of a classic rock song.By the time you get to "Sun is Shining Down" youve been down every "Soul searching ,Blues breaking lump in the throat ballad" you ever want to hear.
Honestly why this band are not selling out arenas instead of little pub like venues i will never know.
The biggest favour is "Buy this" and everything else JJ Grey has done and just listen what you have been missing.
Truly a hidden gem.
